When models first start out in the modeling world they understand the importance of stunning head shots, like this collection of 'Nicky Pijl' by Pim van Offeren ones. Model Nicky Pijl is from the modeling agency Max Models and is a relative new-comer on the fashion scene.

With that being said, this Nicky Pijl by Pim van Offeren demonstrates the importance of having a talented and attentive photographer like Pim van Offeren to work with during the beginning of your career -- that is if the model is fortunate enough. With classic black and white photos like this in Nicky Pijl's portfolio, you can bet she's going places.

Implications - Black and white photography can act as a classic, refreshing deviation from the overly-saturated imagery that consumers are bombarded with on a consistent basis. Companies who are selling products to a more mature, older audience should be considerate that hints of black and white can give products a more classic, timeless aura.
